“Mrs. B” Carri Blake-Brekke
“Mrs B” has been creating children’s songs since she was 11 and performing story time for her own children and their classmates for the past two decades.
Now she brings her treasured (and sometimes wacky) stories, songs and animation to your children through‘Mrs. B’s Story Time…With a Twist’s live performances at schools, bookstores, special events, all over the United States and abroad for military installations and schools.
“Miss Jodi” Jodi Melton
“Miss Jodi” has been an artist from the time she could walk and has been drawing these characters for many years. Now, she shares them with a wider audience through illustrations in Mrs B’s Story Time… with a twist story/song books with sing-a-long CDs book series. (Note: Miss Jodi and Mrs. B are SISTERS!!!!).
‘Mrs. B’s Story Time…With a Twist’ is the result of years of writing and imagination. Since the time Mrs. B was given her first guitar at 11 she has been creating silly songs for family and friends. Mrs. B’s sister Jodi has been drawing her characters since they were kids. How appropriate that their childhood hobbies are now being used to touch the lives of so many wonderful children.
Mrs. B has been writing music and play acting since she was a young girl. Her sister, Miss Jodi, has been an artist since she could hold a pencil. Who knew these two women would develop and hone these talents into what has become today; the high energy and educational presentation with series of books with sing-along CDs.
Whether Mrs. B is presenting large school assemblies with world traveled 1,000 watts of sound and custom stage set up for hundreds of students grades K-8 or if she is in a pre-school with 50 three to five year olds with her more intimate music time… Mrs. B captivates and engages kids!!
For 15 years Mrs. B has traveled the world presenting her unique and original music and stories to children. Her material is current and pertinent. While it educates children with an emphasis in literacy, no-bullying, good character it creates an atmosphere that allows them to just lose themselves in their childhood with fun and fancy.
